1. Play more than one round a month. 2. Get a proper fitting for my whole bag. 3. Single digit handicap. 4. Stop bothering my wife with swing theory. I listed them in order by difficulty. I'd honestl

What course is that? I saw the one pic of the par 5 you posted and I want to see more! PS ... I can't keep up with you on the links yet, but I'm pretty sure I could hang with you on the alley! ;). (

Just broke 90 for the first time today! If this becomes a regular thing, I'll have to update my #2 goal to 85.

Right now I'm a 12.8, so I'd like to take at least 3 strokes off of that and be a single digit. I managed to break 85 a handful of times this last year and broke 80 once, so I'd like to see my scores get down into the low 80s range consistently and see a few more scores in the 70s.

The biggest thing for me is going to be learning how to be more consistent off of the tee... My iron play has become more and more consistent and I pretty happy with that and the short game/putting seems to be coming around but the driver seems to be either be on or completely off... If I can figure that out the above shouldn't be too hard.

Oh, and one last thing... track EVERY round in Scorecard... I did a great job at the beginning of this year doing it and then about half way through I got lazy... I'd like to have an entire year of stats this time next year.

My goal for 2012 was to shoot my age(70) but the closest I came was a 74.. In 2011 I came close needing a birdie on 18 to shoot 69 but fell short. In 2013 my goal is to go out and enjoy the game, don't mad when I play below my expectations and accept how I played

that day.

Improve my all around game to a single digit handicap. Really need to focus on GIR and putts.

2012 Stats:

Driving Accuracy - 54% (27% miss left, 19% miss right)

GIR - 25% (Yes that's terrible)

Putts per round - 33 (Also terrible considering I don't hit many greens!)

My goals are as follows:

1. continue physical therapy so my shoulder dysplasia is no longer a problem (should be accomplished by mid January :fingerscrossed:)

2. Take 3-5 private lessons (waiting to do it once my shoulder feels better)

3. get my swing in a good enough place (hopefully thanks to lessons) that I can start focusing more on my short game and putting to lower my scores

4. The big one and if I accomplish the goals above I think this one will take care of itself: CONSISTENCY

5. Maintain a handicap at 7 or below (currently hopping back from 10-12). Again if I accomplish 1-4 this one will take care of itself

My goal for 2013 is to not let my HC rise by more than 2 strokes.........

I'm joining a new course in 2013 and this course really kicks my butt.  there is trouble everywhere...and when you do finally reach the green....they are very slopy and difficult to 2 putt unless you hit it close.   I hope by playing it regularly, I can figure it out.  Only time will tell...LOL

I am still accumulating score cards and haven't yet established a handicap, but as most of those are (sadly) mid nineties it will come out in the 20's. So far pretty much all of my game is quite erratic, but I'm getting some lessons and putting in a good bit of time on the range and putting green. So... - Gain decent consistency in both distance and direction in my long game and develop some confidence in fairway wood play. - Develop better consistency in my short game and finally learn to chip (a skill that has eluded me in all of my previous attempts at golf.). Better putting too, of course, but I suspect that will remain a lifelong quest. - Progress on the above general goals may be judged by my handicap; I don't think it is too aggressive to aim at 15 this time next year I do hope I'll be back next June to update this after realizing I was way too conservative in this goal... :-P Jim

At my home course, where i have been playing 20-30 rounds each year for ten years:

1. Birdie #12 and #17, neither of which I have ever birdied.

2. Keep my handicap index under 10 for the whole year.

3. Play nine holes in even par.

4. Hit my irons more consistently, taking a few lessons if necessary.

I'll play 2 sets of tees at my new home course..........73.2cr 141slope...forward tees.....and 75.2cr 144slope..(summer tees)

I look forward to the new challenge.......this course is brutal.  If you don't like golf, we can talk bowling, because I do that too.

I'm a much better at golf though..(scratch)....but I can roll the rock...just a bit.  278 is my high game.

1. Develop more accuracy on approach shots.  (need a few more GIR to boost my scores)

2. Break 80 more often.

3. Keep the ball in better position off the tee(cut down on the wild lefts or rights)

4. ENJOY!

    • n=1 with the SM bag. I carried today, and took 12 clubs. The SM bag is much lighter than the Ping Hoofer. It was so light that I feel like I could add my 4-iron and LW in the bag and still not be bothered by the load. However, the fabric/materials also appear thinner/lighter weight. Not that this means it is less durable, but maybe it could be. The Hoofer fabric feels like it could survive a cataclysmic event. The SM bag straps are a little wider and less thick than the Hoofer, but equally comfortable. The pad that rests on your back on the SM is thinner and not quite as comfortable as the Hoofer, which is padded by the rain hood in the pocket behind the pad. But the lightness of the SM bag meant it was not any less comfortable. The SM bag hung a bit more horizontal than the Hoofer, which gave me the uneasy feeling that a club might fall out (none did), so I need to adjust the straps to get this right. Not really a problem. The pocket design and configuration on the Hoofer is better, at least to my preference. I missed the easily accessible magnetic pocket on the Hoofer (where I kept my range finder out of its case). I used a carabiner to clip the rangefinder case onto the bag. It makes getting the rangefinder out and putting away take a little more time, but just something to get used to. The leg unfolding/folding mechanism works great. Overall, pretty pleased with the SM, although like I said, only n=1.
    • I just explained what happened and asked for any tips on removing/installing so I don't deform another grip. Never had this happen to such a large extent (sometimes there is a tiny bit of stretching on the lower part of the grip, but never the top part) on any other Pure grip, so I'm hesitant to try another adjustment without changing my technique. So I'm hoping they'll say what happened was unusual, or I used too much pressure, or to hold the grip in a certain way to prevent that, or something like that.
    • I have a membership to TheGrint.    They have a place for rounds attested.   Since the guys I golf with aren't members and I will not ask them to verify a round via an email, I have 0% attested.   If I play a solo round I count it as a practice round.    My handicap although official shouldn't be any different than a solo round.   I can't prove it wasn't solo other than my integrity.    If my integrity is good enough for 0% attested rounds, it should be good enough for a solo round.
